I, Terrance Roberts, am a federal prisoner who filed a
pltition for a writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. §2241
to raise an actual innocence claim for my convictions of
money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering
after the United States Supreme Court's decision in United
States v. Santos, 553 U.S 507(2008), determined ambiguous the
term "proceeds," as defined in 18 U.S.C. §1956, and that
"proceeds" should be defined as "profits." As a result, I was
convicted of a non-existing offense, and I sought vacation
of my convictions for those offenses. After concluding that
I met the procedural requirements for filing a §2241 petition,
the District Court determined that Santos does not apply to
my convictions and dismissed the case.
F. Whether, according to Eighth circuit law, Santos does not apply
to this case.
Whether a merger problem exists.
Whether the District:Court misapplied the law of the Eighth
Circuit regarding Santos.
